We all respond to things that we consume differently. For example, I have celiac’s disease which is auto immune disorder. So my body and immune system respond to gluten which can be found wheat, barley, oats and rye. However there are people who can really benefit from food that has gluten in it. Though there is a lot of questions surrounding the health factors in grains there are certainly plenty of people who don’t suffer negatively from eating wheat, barley, rye or oats. Food allergies and intolerances is a great way to look at how people differ when it comes to what they consume but what about different substances. Let’s look at alcohol for a moment. Alcohol definitely can affect people differently based on their size, how much food they have eaten and their tolerance in general. You can see that some people can feed very intoxicated on two glasses of wine where some else may not feel a whole lot until they have three or four.
Now that marijuana has become legalized, people are starting to experiment more with how marijuana affects their system. The THC in the cannabis plant is what gets people the psychological shift in perception of the world around you. However THC can have a very different affect on each of us. That is why marijuana dispensaries are asking cannabis couriers to take their weed and have it tested for its potency. Companies like CannaRabbit do cannabis test sample collection so people can know what the potency of the edibles they are eating are. Edibles differ from alcohol because the affect that they have on people vary even more. Some people might feel a mild high or even just a subtle relaxation at 5 mg where as someone else might feel very stoned when eating just 5 mg. Now that marijuana is legal, more people are experimenting with THC to see what the affects the edibles will have on their body and their experience.
CannaRabbit providing this marijuana test sample collection is important because in October of 2014 it is going to be legally mandatory for all dispensaries to do this. I see the value in this because eating an edible with an unknown amount of weed in it can be a very uncertain and possibly scary thing. Though marijuana is actually a very mild drug, if you eat too much of it you can definitely experience what some would call a trip. I have a friend who saw this dog come into her room and just started to bark at her. There was no dog even though she was certain it followed her around for a while.
I think it is very important for the marijuana courier companies to start providing this test sample collection for more reasons than just because it is about to be legally mandatory. Also because people have a right to know what they are consuming and they have a right to be able to regulate that amount with their body’s chemistry. Each of us are entirely different and we have to right to know how our experience will turn out.
